Button phones for seniors with large buttons and a 2020 screen

Despite the fact that smartphones are increasingly pushing button phones out of the market every day, there are several categories of devices for which demand is falling not so fast or not at all. These devices include phones with large buttons, which are primarily designed for older people. By the way, they are often called “grandmothers”. Since the demand for “grandmothers” is large enough, the potential buyer has a choice. We will consider the most current devices at the moment. Here is a phone rating for older people.

Elari CardPhone

Should I add this model to our list? In our opinion, it’s worth it. The phone itself is intended for those users who need a tiny device, because the Elari CardPhone resembles a bank card in its dimensions.
